Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan is a truly brave man.
He has suspended yesterday the Nigerian football team, which failed to win a single match!
Perhaps, because, football is a great uniting and bonding factor in this land of diversity which has more than 300 tribes and customs.
The president also wants an audit of the current World Cup organising committee.
In past, Nigerian fans are known to have become so angry at thier team's failure that they broke glasses of the team bus and hand to be prevented from attacking the dressing rooms with the help of tear gas shells.
Their team, the Super Eagles, has earned the new name, as a joke: the Super Chickens.
The ban is to "enable
Nigeria to reorganise its football".The Nigerian Football Federation will be dissolved were knocked out in the group stages without winning a game. Nigeria
To Mr president Goodluck Jonathan, we say : Jonathan, Goodluck!!
Oh, we need not forget Kabaddi and Kho-Kho and are masters because hardly anybody else knows about it.
One feels our nation deserves Goodluck actions - Nigerian style. Ban all the sports and sportspersons who have lost shamelessly at major events.
Ban them for two years. Put them to focussed task of improving. Audit their accounts. Whip the corrupt and unworthy officials.
As for cricketers, additional put a ban on their advt. contracts , so that they can play properly. Or else, levy additional tax on advt income, so that it is not worth earning.
In other words, do whatever is necessary , whether written in the book or not.
Compare us with the neighbour!
